Could you stay a positive teen through it all?

Age 4-7
Physical fight between parents, Popping pill mother,
Both parents going to bar and drinking, Cheating and depression,
Mental hospital visits, Separation continuing every year or so.
moving continuosly

Age 8-10
Separation, yelling, violence, mental hospital [once this time]
counselor meetings, being deprived from father with drugs,
moving continiously

Age 11-14
Job loss from drugs, moving out of homes again and again,
separation, [serious] physical violence between sibling,
always bicker between sibling no matter the situation,
Pot smoking brother, father, other brother,
Pill taking oldest brother, Smoking mother half alcoholic, Snot nose un grateful sister
add to all the arguments,

Many teens in their life time, have depression [announced or not]
tears shredded, abuse, drugs, all this involved in their life weather they want to admit it or not.

But some blame their life for their outlook on life, So tell me can you still be a positive teen through all this?
I am, and some think id be completely insane for what i've seen, heard, and experienced..

I agree, we shouldn't blame people with depression. Although, we should give them treatment and therapy so they don't make bad desicions throught out the rest of there lives. But I like this, it's very true and needs to be heard.
